Colloquium Wilhelm Killing: Prof. Dr. Alberto Abbondandolo (Universität Bochum): On short closed geodesics, shadows of symplectic balls and polar bodies
Thursday, 10.10.2019 16:30
How long is the shortest closed geodesic on a sphere? How large is the shadow
of a symplectic ball? How large is the volume of the polar of a centrally symmetric convex body? I will discuss how these seemingly different problems can be addressed within the setting of Reeb dynamics.
